Labor Day Parade & Film 

Hooray for a Monday off...but don't take worker's rights for granted. This Labor Day, celebrate and commemorate the hard work of previous generations of workers, and learn about what struggles yet remain. The annual Labor Day Parade will take place Monday, September 3, beginning at 11 a.m., and will travel down East Avenue to Main Street, and then to Plymouth Avenue. For more information, call 428-6690 or visit cityofrochester.gov.

At 6:30 p.m. that evening, head over to the Flying Squirrel Community Space (285 Clarissa St.) for a worker-justice Labor Day movie night and meet & greet. From 6:45 to 7:15 p.m., meet the Worker Justice Group. At 7:15 p.m., take in a screening of "Finally Got the News," a documentary about the League of Revolutionary Black Workers in Detroit auto factories. The film traces their efforts to build an independent black-labor organization. The screening will be followed by open discussion until 9 p.m. For more information, call 678-6870, or visit thesquirrel.org.
